Note to self: Clean gun first!
Always clean and lube a new gun first. Sometimes they're coated in more of a preservative, not lubricating oil, so they don't really run 100%. Also sometimes you'll get little bits of metal left over from the machining process and it's better to get all that crud out. It doesn't take long to clean a theoretically clean gun - at the minimum field strip it, wipe everything down, be surprised that there's gunk on the towel, relube.
